EBD060 Help Your Fearful or Reactive Dog Be Resilient

Are you and your dog both resilient?

There are a lot of factors at play when it comes to being resilient. Things like genetics, environment, level of activity and how often you get outside can greatly impact your response to difficult situations.

Now if this is true for you, imagine how true it is for your dog! The exact same thing applies to them as well!

Our socially intelligent dogs require the same care we do if we expect them to be strong and resilient in the face of adversity!

In this episode of Enlightened By Dogs, Kathy invites us to sit in on a portion of a Brilliant Partners Academy masterclass she hosted about creating resiliency and balance in the lives of our dogs!

She pulls back the curtain and shares a segment of an in depth teaching designed to help us build our dogs up and help them succeed in ways that only a Brilliant Partner possibly can!

In This Episode:

  • Why do we neglect talking about resiliency?
  • Dogs can feel support in a few different ways, how does your dog feel supported?
  • Giving your dog choices in life will create a more balanced life!
  • The beautiful benefits that come from unstructured play.
  • Strategies for dealing with unfavorable situations you find yourself in with your dog.
